Core is a live streaming cloud service that offers network bonding, multi-streaming, cloud device management, point to point professional workflows and more. In this tutorial, we will introduce you to the Core user interface.
Note that we have added a modular UI feature, which you can use to customize the UI to fit your needs. You can learn about it in this document.
The functions of Core are grouped into tabs.
You’ll first be presented with the Dashboard tab. This is where all connected and online encoders and sources will be displayed. You can also create custom dashboards if needed.
The QoS (Quality of Service) tab will show graphs of the bitrate, frame rate and signal strength of any connected devices.
The Sources tab shows all your connected encoders and ingested streams, whether they are online or offline.
The Destinations tab is where you can create streaming destination channels like Facebook, Youtube, RTMP etc, as well as add decoders for point to point workflows.
The Servers tab is where you can launch and control your streaming servers, which are the backbone of Core’s streaming workflows.
The Recordings tab is where you will find recordings that were either recorded in the cloud or backed up using Store and Forward technology.
